On July 4, 1845, the philosopher and naturalist, Henry D. Thoreau moved into the a cabin he had built, on the side of Walden Pond, and began to write the journal that would have a far greater 1.(importance,impact,impression,imprint) impact on the world than the modest writer could have predicted.Trying to live simply 150 years ago, the 28-year-old refugee from convention who was seeking 2.(loneliness,withdrawal,solitude,retirement) retirement appears to have had the same problems as many country-house owners; a stream of guests, meal planning, curious neighbours, a garden needing 3.(consecutive,consequent,constant,consistent) constant tending and decorating decisions. Unexpected guests started to come in droves, wrote Thoreau in ‘Walden’, his journal.
He had wanted quiet and time to think.4.(In contrast,Therefore,What is more,Instead), Instead he became a caprive host. Thoreau, shy and usually polite, had no tolerance for babble but was always 5.(responsible,responsive,replying,respectful) respectfull to thoughtful dialogue and particularly to children, who brought him flowers, weeds and dead animals they had found in the woods.
Thoreau had built his 6.(10-on-15-foot,10-at-15-foot,10-by-15-foot,10-to15-foot) 10 by 15 foot cabin on land lent to him by Ralph Waldo Emerson, a friend of his family,an intellectual of modest 7.(belongings,means,possessions,ownership) means who lived a mile away. Completing the rural atmosphere, Thoreau added a pair of tongs, a kettle, a frying pan, two knives and forks, three plates, one cup and one spoon.
9.(Only,Still,Just,Even) Even the most insensible visitor observed quickly that it would be difficult to stay for dinner. Thoreau, a first-time householder, was determined to live on a(n) 9.(economic,severe,stingy,tight) tight budget.He was convinced that ‘a man may use as simple a diet as the animals, and 10.(even though,nevermind,despite,yet) Yet retain health and strength’. ‘He quickly discovered fast food: bread made from a Latin recipe, ‘which Marcus Porcius Cato gave about 2 centuries before Christ.’ His flatbread was made with flour and water. But his diet was not nutritionally deficient. ‘After a year I am still in the land of the living,’ he wrote.
